By Derek Landy
A couple fantastic sentences to sum up the book, here we go. Stephanie was a normal girl destined for greatness (aren't they all?). Her favouritestest (shhh, it’s a word) Uncle dies and leaves her all his possessions in a will (minus the key to saving the world) and on top of that, his best friend Skulduggery Pleasant. Everyone has strange names in case you were wondering. From there, Stephanie, oh sorry,Valkyrie jumps off the proverbial cliff into the world of everything magical except for leprechauns and unicorns, shame. (The next few books kind of go the same way with all the saving the world and stuff).
Reading Level: Grade 7+
Maturity: Mild violence
I recommend this book because this book is awesome. Fantastic vocabulary, wit coming from all ends and just good old fashion fun.
Like this, like Artemis Fowl, Harry Potter, Graceling, the rest of the Skulduggery Pleasant series (7 so far), Leviathan, Behemoth, Goliath, Percy Jackson and the Olympians
